Police kill #EndSARS protester in Lagos as protests continue nationwide

The man was killed during a fresh round of protests held on Monday across Nigeria.
Police officers have killed a man who was protesting against police brutality, especially by the recently-dissolved Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS).
The man was killed in the Surulere area of Lagos State on Monday, October 12, 2020, barely a day after Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olupraised Lagos police officers for conducting themselves responsibly during protests that started last week.

Effort by medics on the scene to treat the protester failed as he died of a gunshot wound sustained when police officers pushed back to disperse the scores of protesters.

Other protesters reportedly sustained gunshot injuries.
